Default Which joystick

I got FS 2004 and want to get a good joystick. I can't seem to find
reviews. I've pretty much narrowed it down to the Logitech Freedom
(wireless), Force 3D (feedback) or the MS Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro 2
(which Amazon says is discontinued -- curious why). Can folks shed a
little light for me, please.

I've been twisting a Logictech Wingman Extreme for a couple of years
of hard service and it has stood up well.
